Current methods can prevent more than half of all cancers
Fort Lauderdale, FL - A new study released recently from public health researchers at the Siteman Cancer Center in St. Louis demonstrates that over half of all cancer is preventable. Dr. Raymond Francis, MIT-trained scientist and in-demand speaker at health conferences worldwide, has known for many years that we already have the means available to end this epidemic of chronic disease.
Cited as ‘one of the few scientists who has achieved a breakthrough understanding of health and disease,’ Dr. Francis shares this knowledge in his best-selling book, Never Be Sick Again (Health Communications, Inc.). His revolutionary ‘Beyond Health Model’ is already in use by people around the world who are using it to cure themselves of ‘incurable’ diseases - just as he did twenty-five years ago when he was told by doctors that he was terminal and conventional medicine could do nothing.
According to the American Cancer Society, over 1,638,000 new cancer cases will be diagnosed in the U.S. this year. “The health of our people is deteriorating rapidly. More than 3 out of 4 Americans now have a diagnosable disease and the healthcare costs are threatening to bankrupt our country,” says Dr. Francis.
The Siteman study shows that smoking alone is responsible for one-third of all cancer cases, and an additional 20 percent is caused by excess body weight and obesity. Correcting these two lifestyle choices would drop the cancer rate by a whopping 50 percent!
While researchers argue that the greatest emphasis should be put into preventative measures, there are many factors that stand in the way and it would truly need to be a society-wide effort that included changes by government, doctors, health insurance, and individuals to make it a reality.
Dr. Raymond Francis is an internationally recognized leader in the field of optimal health maintenance and his revolutionary new understanding of health is based on cutting-edge cellular biochemistry and molecular biology that prevents and reverses disease.
